I recently was given Yoh contact information from a center city hotel I was hosting an event at. There were more than 30 children of all ages that needed childcare. I was at my wits end but once I spoke to them I feel confident I had called the right place. Their staff was punctual, professional, and interactive with each child. They totally exceeded my expectations. The children all had a great time & the parents couldn't be more grateful. I am looking forward to working with them again in the near future. They did not disappoint.
absolutely fantastic company that provides each family with customized care at extremely affordable prices. especially if you have more then one child, a nanny comes to your home for the price of one in day care have both cared for at the price of one. True all American women dedicated professionals. Bonded by TRAVELER'S INSURANCE. Any other agency offer that much? NO!
The owner of this company is a liar and a thief. I interviewed the owner in person. I was specifically looking for a bilingual nanny and was assured that this was not a problem. Of the three names the agency sent me, only one had ANY Spanish ability - one class in high school! The agency couldn't provide any other option and has refused to refund my money. We have been very polite, and originally didn't have any complaint other than wanting our money back. Since then I have come to the conclusion that they are a liars. If we call using our real name we are told the owner is on vacation or sick and unavailable to return calls. Yet if we call using a fake name we are told otherwise. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY.
They described themselves as a caring responsible professional nanny service. We interviewed 13 candidates and only 4 had any really long term nanny experience. The person we chose had never worked for that nanny service before but had extensive nanny experience, she was great at the beginning but within 3 mos., she was calling out at random and waiting for us to leave for work before developing ailments. They provided temporary replacements, two were fine and one nanny frightened our son terribly, he was 6 months old. We thought we found a permanent replacement when they assured us the nanny they were sending was a seasoned nanny. As it turns out, she informed us that she had not worked as a nanny or for that nanny service for almost 13 yrs. She left our son in the pack n play with a horribly soiled diaper and she explained that she spent her time at our house making â??important family relatedâ?? cell phone calls. We terminated our relation with the service after that. They seemed to be more interested in misrepresenting themselves and collecting fees than proving responsible professional nanny care.
Best Service EVER.
I recently wrote a review on here.....what I left out was that my friends also used Yoh while they were traveling with us.
They had the same pleasant experience. They called last minute so we could all go out to dinner. They sent over a caregiver almost immediately.
Highly Recommend Them. I was referred to Yoh by the hotel I was staying at. I had several business meetings and needed to take along my 10 year old daughter. My caregiver was fantastic. With my permission, she took my child out to explore the city. She came up with fun yet educational ways for them to spend their time together. They got along so well by daughter didn't want to leave. I was very thankful & certainly recommend them whole heartedly. The next time I am traveling this way again, I will definitely contact them.
Excellent Service / Highly Recommended. While in Philadelphia we used Your Other Hands to care for our 3 young girls. My husband and I were extremely pleased with their service. We immediately felt at ease the moment our caregiver walked through the door. She even went the extra mile and surprised the girls by bringing along some games for them to play with. This entertained them for the entire evening. Thanks again. We're very happy to have found your organization and will use them again next time we are in the area.
Concerned. My friends and I recently stayed at a highly rated Hotel in City Center Philadelphia. We were advised by our Hotel that Your Other Hands was a reputable company in business for almost 25 years. The sitter that was sent to watch our two small children seemed strange but I thought maybe I was over reacting. I spent an hour sitting and making small talk with this woman as my daughter was asleep for the night and my friend was putting her son to bed before we left to have dinner at a nearby restaurant. The other Mother and I asked questions and we received what seemed to be "reasonable" explanations for the odd behavior. She also claimed 19 years with her company and said she had a child of her own. We only left for 2 hours while both kids were sleeping. All we needed was a responsible adult in case of an emergency or if a child woke up. We returned to the Hotel to find the sitter had been "removed" from her post by concerned Hotel management while we were at Dinner. It seems after we left her "odd" behavior caused a Hotel employee alarm when they delivered ice to the room. It was VERY startling to return to hotel staff waiting in our hotel suite. Although we are happy with the staff's swift action, we are sorry it had to happen. It's hard to leave your babies with a stranger and this was a our first time... Scary

Please view the International NannyAssociations's website (www.nanny. Org) - it specifically lists the company as a company posing to be a member who is not.
Need say more.
heard a lot about hard to find worth the search!!!!!. For over a year now I have heard every one from , our Doctor, the nurses and even my pediatrician all highly recommend a service unlike any other available to moms in our area called YOUR OTHER HANDS, a reputation that speaks for itself. It is a company owed and operated by a mom for other moms. When they say " it's their nature to nurture" CREATED BY MOMS FOR MOMS" the truth has really been spoken. I got the impression they cared for me as a mom as much as they delivered excellent care for my daughter. Does it cost more, yes. Is it worth very penny BY FAR! I can do without Starbucks and other expenses to see the delight in my daughter clear healthy eyes when I come home. I am NOT a reviewer of sorts but I had to tell folks about this discovery right here in our own back yard. As parents we do not realize how GOOD we have got it with a service like this, owner answers the phone! I tried the cheaper route as many of friends did only to find out that the competition an internet service, is beyond comprehension when asking for a stranger to care for my daughter. There are scary, very scary results from doing this over the internet. Take my word for it friends and I have been there done that, never again !!.I sleep so well at night and so does my husband and daughter. Your Other Hands is THE BEST OF THE BEST! Call you'll find out for yourself. Highly recommend.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent Child Care Service. I used the services of Your Other Hands while visiting Philadelphia. I had to go to a dinner and didn't know anyone in town to watch my kids. I am a very protective mom and was pretty worried about leaving my kids in a hotel with a nanny. I checked with my hotel and they recommended Your Other Hands. I contacted them and they were so reassuring and helpful that I felt really comfortable about leaving my kids with them. My kids had a wonderful time with Madeline. She had even brought toys for them and played games. Awsome service. Absolutely recommended.
